Initially, in 1754, the design of the structure included two towers. However, the architect Nicolau Nasoni ultimately decided to build only one of them. The construction of this piece of architecture, an excellent example of Baroque art, ended in 1763 and was created for the Brotherhood of Poor Clerics of Porto, hence its current name. A church bearing the same name was also built attached to the Torres dos Clerigos.Although it no longer has this title, for many years the Tower was the highest building in the city. Inside it has 240 steps and its different levels are open to the public, even at night. From this beautiful historic building, located in Porto’s old town, you can admire and enjoy some wonderful views of the city.Porto’s old town is a difficult area to reach by car. However, you can park your vehicle in a Saba car park, located very close to this point of interest, and visit this building and many other monuments in the historical centre on foot. Saba car parks are available 24 hours a day and have modern facilities with Wi-Fi included.
